In August 2014 Tom Lapworth and his sister-in-law Alice brought narrowboats Nutfield and Raymond from Braunston to Alvecote for the Historic Boat Gathering. Tom and Alice were both born on working narrowboats and crewed them towards the end of the canal trade.
Here you can watch them navigating the Atherstone Locks and talking to Steve Miles at Alvecote.
Alice’s autobiographical book “A Horse, A Boat and You” is available from SGM Publishing. Click here for details and to buy online
